Around the Corner Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman is a wonderful crochet resource with 150 crochet edges and trims to help spruce up any craft project. The book starts off by showing you the various techniques on how to work a crochet border into your existing knitting and crochet, but it doesn’t stop there! What blew me away were the ways in which Eckman illustrates how to embroider and then crochet these borders onto fabric and felt! Just think about the many ways you can embellish things you already have around your house or closet. Transform an ordinary tank top into something more colorful with a delicate crochet trim or how about cute striped edge for a boring kitchen curtain? I like how this book has opened up my creativity to crochet borders, beyond just blankets.
The bulk of the book contains page after page of inspiring crochet borders. I love the clean layout and how each photo of the border is large enough so that you can actually see the details in the stitches. Each crochet border comes with full text pattern as well as illustrated chart so that you are extra clear on how to crochet, including 90-degree corner turns. This book is for anyone who wants to take their fiber and crafting projects to the next level. It’s a great addition to your crafty library!
